P5a Learning Log – 20th April

This week in maths we have been counting in tens and back and reacalling my times tables and division. It wasn’t to hard and it wasn’t to easy. We have been doing athletic throwing. I think it went well because we don’t get to do that a lot. It was fun. In topic we were making story sticks for Kensuke’s kingdom. I think it went well because its fun working in pairs. 

Topic went well because we drew. 

Maths could have gone better because it was too hard. 

Next week we are looking forward to our new topic.

P5a – Learning log 9th March

P5a had such a busy week this week that we did our Learning Log as a whole class.

Here are some of the things that we think went well this week and why;

Miko – Maths because I enjoy maths much more than I used to, I am finding the maths work much easier now.

Taba – I think the Japanese fans went well because I had quite a detailed painting.

Oliver – Haves and quarters because I am finding the work pretty easy, I think I remember some stuff from P4 which is helping me.

Arnold – Maths, I enjoy it and it is easy.

Paige – Big writing for fairtrade, I liked taking notes on the video and finding out new things about it.

Maisie – I enjoyed living and growing because I found out new stuff that I didn’t know before.

P5a – Drama based on Kensuke’s Kingdom

We have been acting out characters from the book ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’. We had to become one of the character and imagine how we would feel. We had to answer questions from others in our group as if we were that character.

The characters we were being were Kensuke now, Kensuke when he first arrived on the island, Michael now and Michael when he first arrived on the island.

We had to sit in the position that the character would be in so if we were Kensuke we sat bent over.

Here is a clip of Mia acting out Kensuke now! 

P5a – world book day

We had greate fun in P5a celebrating world book day! We dressed up as our favourite book characters, can you guess who we all are? Miss Firth will give a house point to anyone who comes in with a list of who everyone is dressed up as!


We also went up to the library to visit Blackwells who had come to the school for the day, it was great to be able to buy books using our book tokens.

Thursday 2nd March This week in Maths we have been learning about to recall our number bonds quickly and accurately and can use multiples of 10 and 100 to create new facts. I think it went well 35+75=110 3500+7500=11000

In literacy we have been learning how to use ai words and how to spell them it could have gone better because we need harder words.
